    No. Use only Honda ATF for your Vee.

    Honda fluid is different and is what must be used in any Honda.

    I wouldn't put any fluids in a Honda other then from a bottle marked compatible with Honda fluids.Why take a chance for under a $10 bottle of whatever kind of fluid it is?!

    If it's brake fluid make sure it's DOT 3.

    Get the tranny ATF changed at the dealer every 60,000 miles so that they have records of you doing the maintenance with them. That way when the CVT tranny fails you can get a customer good will extended warranty.

    Why not Gomez, and you can suck it directly out from Jet Dorks DEF RAM junk truck tank for free.

    You most certainly can. After it's done, you can call a tow truck and have your Honda hauled off to the dealer for repairs

    Use the automatic transmission fluid that is specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Failure to use the proper fluid could cause major problems with your transmission.

    No. Your Honda takes specific tranny fluid.

    In an emergency you can even use motor oil as a substitute for hydraulic fluid. I'm looking at auto parts store websites and they seem to distinguish between "tractor" and "conventional" hydraulic fluid. But I don't know.

    No. Don't put dirty hydraulic fluid into any vehicle.
